Updated at 12:35 PM CDT on Monday, Sep 28, 2015
A violent weekend left four people dead and at least 52 others injured, including a 10-year-old girl and 13-year-old boy, in shootings across Chicago.
This marks the second weekend in a row where more than 50 people were shot in Chicago. Last weekend, eight people were killed and at least 45 others were wounded, reportedly making it the city's most violent two-day weekend since Father's Day 2013.
The 10-year-old girl was among three people shot Sunday afternoon in the South Side Woodlawn neighborhood, police said. The shooting happened at about 12:50 p.m. in the 1400 block of East 66th Place.
The girl suffered a graze wound to the neck and was taken to Comer Children's Hospital in good condition, according to police.
Two teenagers were also wounded in the shooting. A 19-year-old man was critically injured after he was shot in the back, and an 18-year-old woman was shot in the right calf. Both were taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital.
Another incident Sunday left a 13-year-old boy and two other teenagers injured. The boy was inside a residence in the 11300 block of South Throop with two other boys, ages 15 and 16, when they heard a loud noise at about 2:35 a.m., police said.
The boys then ran to a window, and an unknown person outside fired shots at the window, according to police. All three boys were transported to hospitals with non-life-threatening injuries from broken glass and other debris.
At the hospital, a doctor determined an unknown object was lodged in the 13-year-old's skin, police said. Detectives have classified the incident as a shooting.
The first fatal shooting incident happened around noon on Saturday in the Bronzeville neighborhood.
A 25-year-old man was inside an apartment in the 700 block of East 47th Street with 34-year-old Marvin Lee when the two got into an argument, police said. Lee then opened fire on the man, who was struck three times. The victim was taken to John H. Stroger Jr. Hospital, and he was pronounced dead at 12:43 p.m., according to police and the Cook County medical examiner's office.
Police said at the time that the shooter called police saying the man had broken into his home, but it was later discovered that the two knew each other and had an altercation prior to the shooting.
Lee faces one felony count of first-degree murder, police said. He was scheduled to appear in bond court Sunday.
Early Sunday, a 28-year-old man was shot to death in the Longwood Manor neighborhood on the South Side.
Marcus Cox was standing outside about 4:20 a.m. in the 9600 block of South Morgan when someone fired shots in his direction, striking him in the abdomen, according to police. Cox, who lived on the same block as the shooting, was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, where he was pronounced dead at 3:19 p.m., the medical examiner’s office said.
About an hour earlier, a man was gunned down in the Pilsen neighborhood on the Lower West Side.
Abraham Barrera, 23, and another man, 24, were driving in the 1100 block of West 18th Street about 3:20 a.m. when someone walked out of an alley and opened fire, authorities said. Both were shot in the head.
Barrera, who lived in the 4100 block of West 58th Place, was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, where he died at 5:33 a.m., authorities said. The 24-year-old was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital in critical condition. Investigators think the shooting was gang-related.
Hours later, 25-year-old Quinton D. Goins was shot to death while sitting inside a car in the North Lawndale neighborhood.
Goins was inside the vehicle in the 3900 block of West Roosevelt at about 3 p.m. Sunday when another car drove by and a shootout between the two cars commenced, police said. The man was shot in the back and shoulder and taken to Mt. Sinai Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Agreed. Been absolutely beautiful. Cool temps, blue skies, fish biting, gang members killing each other and each others families within the confines of their disgusting well hidden neighborhoods. I love fall.
Sounds like an atypical quiet weekend for a change, kind of slow.
How good is it? I haven't had a pizza in a long time
Plenty of gun ranges, they don't take ebt cards.
Giordanios just barely makes my top 10. Still awesome but there are a bunch better.
We all can't wait..........enjoy your liberal utopia
I can't answer in one word, so here is my opinion. I have eaten as much pizza as any person reading this thread. I like pizza, just about all pizza.
I have three or four pizza joints here I patronize, but will never turn down pizza from anyplace. The pizza there was very good, different than pizza I've had anyplace else, so I'm giving it an 8, because it was original to me, thin crust, tangy sauce, and cut into squares rather than slices and was in downtown Chicago in the fall.
If I go back to Chicago, I will try the pizza at a different place, just because that have so many different places.
You spend your time wandering the streets to take photo's of unsuspecting women? Are we going to hear about you in the news soon?
I like good pizza. I find it everywhere.
Not sure I noticed why NY or Chicago pizza was "special." The styles, yes, I get.
But you really don't have to go to NY or Chicago to get good pizza.
This isn't 1957.
Especially when you are 2 feet from her.
Its the River North Neighborhood, wives waking dogs, jogging, going for walks all the time. 5 Girls on every block at almost all times.
That's an interesting hobby taking pictures of the sidewalk you see every day as you go to and from work. :shrug
We're all glad you explained yourself to the Internet Police....those guys can be tough.
And that one pic with the steam, thats a friggin chocolate factory(Blommers). Smells like someone is making brownies around here most of the time.
Guess I'm the only one that thinks it is creepy to take photo's of unsuspecting women as you walk down the street. Carry on. I guess it's a new world we live in.
They are called creeper shot dummy. Are you new here? :huh
Record for what?
